Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volvo S90 than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53, drivers may find the Volvo S90 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo S90, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volvo S90, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 and the Volvo S90 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 is a little narrower than the Volvo S90, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 is slightly shorter than the Volvo S90, which may make it easier to park.

Handling

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 and the Volvo S90. The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 has less cargo capacity than the Volvo S90, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
